In my family we eat rice frequently. Most of the time I cook plain rice or fried rice. Today I tried to add a twist and decided to try lemon grass rice. I had tried it once in Thailand and really liked it. After I cooked it I was able to taste lemongrass in every bite of rice. I served this rice with Tofu minced meat.

  2. 2Once the water boils reduce heat to medium low. Cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. It takes like 15-18 minutes.
